is going to require compromise in a different type of deficit reduction plan. given all of those virginia jobs at stake, how can you say no to any type of tax and revenue increase, even if it is paired with a greater degree of spending cuts? >> getting our fiscal house in order in washington. i saw this as being another example of washington leaders not making decisions, putting off decisions to yet another commission, which, if it failed, as it did, it would be the responsibility of the federal government, which is national defense, as well as it being what is known to be over 200,000 technology and defense jobs in virginia. what we need to do is repeal or replace obamacare. but will sit trillions in spending, and that is harmful for business. i think we need to cut out and look at where there is redundancy in government. the government accountability office has put that forward. federal government employees, we have to reward them for cost- saving ideas. in the long term, a balanced budget amendment. tim said in the last debate that this is the right thing to do. now, he has, up with a
the federal deficit, increase taxes and comply with spending cuts. the fed should not be doing anything else. to you agree with that? >> you know what, i don't agree with any of that. i am a part of that survey. and the bottom line is is that what i want to see his no increase in tax rate and a big spending cuts. the u.s. is spending too much. we are spending 24% of gdp. that is a huge burden on our economy. it's like -- and as a resource that usually carries 112-pound jockey having to carry a 250-pound jockey. there's no way that horse to win the race or run fast. we need to put this jockey on a diet. that's what we have to do. and raising tax rates on the course, the economy, that accomplishes the wrong thing. the way you balance the budget is you cut spending, and that will also boost growth in the u.s. economy. cheryl: i want to ask you this before we leave. this is something i kind of could not believe. we had the chief u.s. equity strategist at morgan stanley say basically we could kick qe for by the end of the year. possible? >> you know, i personally don't think so. this goes back to
directly now. the annotated obama, how 90% of the deficit becomes somebody else's fault. a scathing editorial debunks the president's assertions about all the that he inherited. and frequently joining "varney & company" we appreciate you being with us, mark. >> good to see you, always a pleasure. stuart: good. now, the president says he's not responsible for the debt largely, not concerned about it in the short-term. i put it to you, that this is being irresponsible. he's getting away with it because a lot of people don't understand the jargon, your eyes glaze over when you start to talk about debt and deficit, he can get away with it, but he's dismissing extremely important part of america's financial life and i think being irresponsible. how do you respond? >> i don't think that he's dismissing it at all. in fact, the president said many times that the debt, the long-term debt is a serious problem and that's why he signed over 2 trillion dollars in spending cuts during his administration. but the core question you're raising is, who really is responsible for this. the congressiona
that time he has in fact voted several times to vouch erize medicare. i believe we can lower the deficit and debt, but we will not do it, we should not do it, we cannot do it at the expense of the important programs for seniors. >> welcome, everybody. thank you for coming out today. i want to give a big thanks to the missouri press association and giving me a chance to introduce myself to the misery and people. like many of you, i am tired of the constant fighting of republicans and democrats. beating the other team has become more informed than finding solutions to american's problems. america is on the verge of a financial collapse, and both parties are to blame with the reckless borrow, taxes and spend parties. for as long as i can remember, and most of you as well, republican and democrat politicians have offered up solutions, but america's problems have only gotten worse. higher and higher taxes. more intrusions in your business and personal life. enough is enough. i will stand up for your personal freedom. i will stand up for marriage equality, legalization of marijuana. i am fisca
, to the projects that we had talked about, we had just closed out a $385 million deficit. we had introduced pension reform as we talked about it at that time to get the city in better economic gear. we had also chosen a new police chief by a year-ago and excited to see what that was. and then supervisor kim and i and david chiu had been fresh off of helping the company called twitter sustain the city and i want to thank supervisor kim, who is here today and we're working closely together to make sure we're doing it right. that all of the impacts that we can generate positively, not only on central market, but throughout her district and throughout the city. i also want to acknowledge other people that are working really hard, because my feeling in a year-ago was that after all of those things that we did, and the work that we had done that first year, rest was my major focus. and after i met with you last year, rest was not on the agenda. absolutely not. in fact, we had gone right to work because there were so many of you who had also felt that the city could turnaround. you have given me and our

at the deficit, everybody knows the problem with the deficit. who do we think is more likely to deal with the deficit? someone who has run it up over a trillion dollars every year he has been in office? is that too is going to do it to? or do we think governor romney, a businessman who is committed to fiscal responsibility is going to do it? who is going to do it to? if the barack obama is in the white house four years from now, he will have appointed one half of all federal judges and he will have changed the complexion of the added states supreme court for decades. can we stand that in this country? is that what we want to? no. foreign affairs. the president of the united states went to new york today, yesterday. other presidents have gone to meet with world leaders to sit down with the israelis and other allies, people who he needs to understand. and interesting article this morning about his failure to do that. he went to new york not to meet with world leaders, he is on "the view." [booing] what a sense of priorities. he said after our ambassador was killed, after we look at the
raised levels of almost 4% of gdp in 2010 and we see that today deficit is tomorrows taxes and the market always punishes the lack of fiscal irresponsibility. that is why expanding the public debt is to stimulate the economy and we understood that. once you do if you have to take measures to rebuild your finances. the big mistake made by the many economy starting the crisis was to forget that we can use the public deficits like this. but if you try to use it on a regular basis, you will face sooner or later problems in the deficit and that is exactly what is happening with several economies in europe right now. that is why we've put in place an exit strategy to regain the fiscal balance including several painful measures. for instance increasing the tax revenues come producing the public expenditures, promoting the reforms and the deregulation program. we also sit down with a very inefficient energy company which saves the government more than $5 billion a year in subsidies. thanks to the fiscal discipline, the public debt is a historical low level. more than twice the amount of the total
bringg in 87 billion dollars. with a deficit of a trillion plus, you still have a 900 billion dollarr deficit and if you have a trillion dollar deficit. it brings in 8divide million from the rich and you still have 913 billion of red ink . and you can crazy and trash the millionaires and take every red cent they earn . every millionaire will have the entire income confiscated. you trash the institution and confiscate the red cent and you bring in 839 billion. >> steve: you are way short. >> brian: we are short a trillion every year. >> you don't have a taxing problem. this is a spending problem. it is solved by reducing spend reforming entitlements over the long term. taxing the rich will make barely any difference . it is a political slogan. >> steve: right now the president wants to get reelected so he has the key to air force one. >> he thinks that if you tax the rich that brings in votes. >> steve: we are talking about increasing the taxes on the rich. what people forget about. taxes for everyone are scheduled to go up next year. >> yes, they will. >> steve: everybody is going to
to curb out debt and deficit. but the president is ahead on who's better to get the economy back on track. steve liesman is here with the disconnect. >> we've been puzzling over this all day. i want to show you the results we have from our national survey of 800 americans. take a look on the economy. who would be better over the next four years. first of all, we asked people, are you better or worse with compared to the last four years? no question here. 55 to 27 definitively, things are worse. what about who's better over the next four years? obama beats romney by nine point. that's more than other surveys out there. caution here, weak survey. other surveys more interested in the political side. they survey registered and likely voters. how about jobs? six to two, worse on jobs. who's better? obama wins. the one place where romney wins is as maria said, on the next one, on the deficit. overwhelmingly, people think the deficit is worse than it was four years ago. they're right. they say romney, only within the margin of error, which is 3.5%, plus or minus on this poll. take a look at the
bonds because they now have a pension deficit. that's nonsense, of course. what's happening on the corporate side? they're awash with capital. are we also getting less issuance and how much more money do corporates need to have? >> what's interesting is the eurozone credit market is shrinking year on year which is the first time it's done that for a long time. there's not only less issuance, there's less coming out to meet, retiring effectively. corporates as kelly said earlier, the economic outlook is not rosy. the motivation to carry out m&a activities is relatively low. so i expect the trend to continue. >> and the quality they're issuing isn't all that great either. >> the good quality have all the cash they need. so, you know, they don't need any who are. >> most of them have the cash. i think the good quality borrowers can borrow really easier. there's huge 2k3457demand for h the spreads are tight. >> angela merkel and mario draghi are both delivering speeches in berlin today. organized by the bdi which represents large and small enterprises, the day of industry is int
markets. next, we've got to balance the budget. you've got tout the deficit. you've got to stop spending more money than we take in. and finally, champion small business. have tax policies, regulations, and healthcare policies that help small business. we put those in place; we'll add twelve million new jobs in four years. i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> it is not your typical party entertainment, but one man in guarantee a he can that your guests won't forget. he is offering his alligator as guest. it gives children a crash course on gator safety. >> you have had the chuck e. cheese party, the clown party. when you say you have a party, that is nice. pool party with a gator? everyone comes. >> or everyone stays away. say they are investigating the business. getting in way i'm that pool. >> but my 8-year-old would love it. weather? anncr: more anti-maryland ads. from this west virginia casino. they want marylanders to keep coming to west virgia... casinos like theirs. spending one hundred seventy million a year. question seven will keep those dollars at home by building a
for ten weeks' time. you can say you need to tax millionaires more but it won't do anything to the deficit unless you attack the real issue: spending. >> bob: they are not going to do the bush tax cut. there is something working on capitol hill, sequestration two. they will punt it down to the next congress. it guarantee you. >> kimberly: reaction to that? >> dana: well, last night, as i was taking care of jasper, of course, i see that president obama is going to be on "60 minutes." i thought it was a repeat. he has been on "60 minutes" more than steve cross has been on it. ten times, watered down the prime opportunity in the p.r. and the brand of "60 minutes." in addition, "60 minutes" said they did this interview with president obama on september # 2. it's very unusual they would not demand at least an opportunity to go back to president obama because so much happened between the 12 and the 21 that obama didn't have to answer for that romney did when he did an interview on the 21st. >> kimberly: let's take a listen to romney on "6 of 0 minutes." >> the current rate less 20%. the top rate
new book on the deficit challenges. it is all yours. >> you should have made the introductions longer. you are on a roll. >> thank you very much. we are both delighted to be here. we know there are so many issues people are interested in. none more important than the economy. that is why we're really thrilled to be here to take part in this debate. the election is only 42 days away. with every day, more questions pop up. the more the public wants answers. the candidates debate start next week. i think our opportunity today to talk with these two advisers cannot be more timely. i am just going to start by asking questions that david will come after. we're going to go back and forth. we will see where it goes. we will be looking to the audience for you to ask a question. why did your candidate believe that this economy is not creating more jobs? what would he do to change that and make things better? >> we came through the deepest recession since the great depression. >> democrat tim kaine and republican george allen are running for the senate this year. they participated in a debate, m
specifics whether it's the american jobs act or whether it's his plan to responsible bring down the deficit by $4 trillion. this is specifics that are coming out of our ears specifics. mitt romney -- this debate and the issue you raised is more about how they see the country and mitt romney has made clear and i was watching that interview with absolute disbelief as i'm sure many americans were that he thinks people making $50,000 a year, that's a fire fighter, a nurse, a teacher, those people should pay 1 a. higher rate than people making millions. and this is a real difference between their views of the world, that i views of country and what their priorities are and how their prities will impact their plans. and that's a central debate in this election over the next 40 something days. >> i have to ask you, though, because you've been getting a lot of krcritics about the fact that the president would sit with the ladies "the view" and not take any one-on-ones. and nothing wrong with the interview with helthem, it's ju the timing. why not wait and instead of opening up such a vulnerable att
not paying federal income taxes little decision has been given about debt and deficits of 58 million americans collecting more benefits than they pay in taxes. >> it disconnecting people of the cost of government and they will have a much bigger appetite for government spending as more and more americans don't pay taxes there's less resistance to programs that take money from everybody else. >> close to half don't pay federal income taxes some are retired elderly collecting social security and medicare the study excluded them. even without them the number of nontaxpayers risen from 21 percent in 1990 42 percent toda. government spending has grown to pace. >> the gobbling of the nonpayer rate associated with more than 200 billion about 213 billion in entitlement spending today. it is a big chunk of change a big part of the federal budget. >> 213 billion a year over 20-years the study found the number of nonpayers has increased the debt to gdp ratio by 14 points. those who don't pay federal income taxes pay other taxes. he and both parties expanded tax breaks for the working poor. >> w
be asked to testify whether or not psycho paths have affective deficits. absolutely they do. there has been hundreds of years of psychiatric research shows that they do. you have this two prong thing. on the one hand more dangerous if you release them and don't treat them. on the other hand, they're affectively different. there was a very nice article in the "new york times" magazine on mother's day about children who have these emerging traits and how we would develop and understand and treat them. it's a small percentage. my goal is to develop better treatment so they can keep them off that trajectory towards life course persistent problems. >> are you saying that people that have the brain structure that you have identified will always be lacking in volitional control or impulse receive to the extent that they are criminals? do we have a subset of people that are criminals because of their brains? >> i should really differentiate psychopathy from criminality. there are a lot of reasons why individuals engage in different criminal activity. it's a very small percentage of prisoners that a
to eat right, you know. [laughter] >> that being said, i do believe that deficits in certain essential aminnow acids and other types of things can certainly increase people's impulsivity. they can increase people's chances of not -- of those types of things, yeah. >> and one final question and i'm going to rephrase it a little bit, but why is it that we treat people who have, say, traumatic brain injuries or other diagnosed mental illnesses in the criminal justice system rather than in the mental health system? [applause] >> so what i showed you today was to give you that exact what is neuroscience doing in the legal is system and so that person of the person with the tumor, you could all see that and so can a radiologist. but the else that we do know of those images. no radiologist can just see by looking at them. we are so sensitive to individual differences in i.q., in age, in all of these different availables, psychopathy scores, whatever it is, we can develop beautiful pictures of these things. so the question is, how is the legal system going to deal with all of these different,
of deficit reduction plan. given all of those virginia jobs at stake, how can you say no to any type of tax and revenue increase, even if it is paired with a greater degree of spending cuts? >> getting our fiscal house in order in washington. i saw this as being another example of washington leaders not making decisions, putting off decisions to yet another commission, which, if it failed, as it did, it would be the responsibility of the federal government, which is national defense, as well as it being what is known to be over 200,000 technology and defense jobs in virginia. what we need to do is repeal or replace obamacare. but will sit trillions in spending, and that is harmful for business. i think we need to cut out and look at where there is redundancy in government. the government accountability office has put that forward. federal government employees, we have to reward them for cost-saving ideas. in the long term, a balanced budget amendment. tim said in the last debate that this is the right thing to do. now, he has, up with a plan. i will ask you, with your plan, have you done an
to cut the deficit. you've got to stop spending more money than we take in. and finally champion small business. have tax policies, regulations, and healthcare policies that help small business. we put those in place; we'll add twelve millio new jobs in four years. i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. come on, kids, we've got to go. [ knocking ] oh, no, i got to go. oh, can you make that to go? these days, nobody has time to get sick. but minuteclinic makes it easy to get well. our nurse practitioners can diagnose and write prescriptions for everything from strep throat to sinus infections with no appointment necessary, so you can feel better in no time. you guys want to go to the park? yeah! yeah! minuteclinic, the medical clinic in cvs/pharmacy. accepts united healthce benefit plans. find a clinic near you at minuteclinic.com. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> in a speech to the united nations general assembly, the president called a nuclear iran and tried to the existence of israel. he also co

. all kinds of things to try to deal with the deficit problem and these protesters are unhappy with the cuts that have happened. they don't want to see more of them on thursday. they need to do something. back to you. >> who are these people in the streets? >> that is a good question. most protests that you see in europe are orchestrated by the unions. this was more about younger people being out there. this was not organized by the unions even though they have been activity with protests in madrid as well. they have unemployment that is extremely high. >> live from madrid, spain. none of this seems to be scaring off veteran money manager, ken heebner. we'll hear this story in a few moments. please stay with us. >>> well, the pictures in spain contributed to the sell-off today. the dow dropped down to over 100 points. ken, great to have you. let me just have you, does it throw a monkey wrench into your optimistic monkey view? >> no. i think they are all agreed on a program to have more them doing the os teterity they are doing, they are going to support the ability of these cou
the president not spending enough in outer space. this is mr. the deficit is coming to eat your grandchildren, but that's okay. because we should still be going to the moon to keep the chinese from being space station there. they are going to build a toy store there. and mitt romney is going to send all the work there. he is a remarkable guy, he is very capable of sending your job to china and making his money. >> stephanie: yeah exactly. love your headlines, scott brown will not be bullied by a girl from harvard. the only clips i saw was him bringing up her heritage over and over again. >> i think he's making a little bit of headway -- you know making her explain what she did for asbestos companies. it helped the asbestos workers, but you have to understand bankruptcy law to understand how it did that and you can't make a commercial out of that. the whole you make $350,000 to teach one course -- well he has been to law school. he knows how law schoolworks. >> stephanie: exactly. >> that line of attack is completely dissident from the line he sold to the country for three year
trade action. we went from a billion-dollar trade deficit to $10 billion over the last ten years. that's a lot of job loss and a lot of jobs we could start to regain with with we enforce the rules that china clearly is cheating. they subsidize capital and energy and land and water. they don't play fair on currency. we stand up to them, it means good jobs and it will create a middle class in ohio. >> in your own campaign in ohio, as i mentioned in the introduction, you've raised money for your own campaign. your opponent has raised not sis similar amounts. the big difference is outside money that's coming in on his behalf. you're being outspent 4 to 1 when you look at the numbers. why are these groups from outside your state so interested in seeing you lose, a, and b, why do it in ohio when there's a premium on ad dollars because the presidential campaign is spending money? >> their money may be unlimited. and they are going after me because it's dark money. we don't know for sure who it is. we think it's the oil industry because of my efforts to take on the oil companies and the subsid
that devil. >> so you don't buy the idea that everybody gets a tax cut, it's deficit neutral and we'll figure out the details later. i think that's basically the problem in a nutshell for the romney campaign and it's part of the reason why you have others starting to panic publicly and it's this. the central element of the romney campaign was that economic anxiety among swing voters was going to be so high they were going to have the attitude we just want to vote the incumbent out. they looked at president obama in 2012 and they said we've got the same thing this year. we need to be a generic protest vehicle. we need to be as inoffensive and nonspecific as possible to swing voters. that strategy is good for 45, 46, 47% of the vote. it has not gotten them higher all year. there's no reason to think that that strategy alone is going to left them over the top. now you've got republicans that are starting to pan he can e romney has choices, he can start saying something more affirmative but if he wants to appeal to swing veeters, he's going to irritate his base. or he's going to alienate the swin
lots of money. in fact, we didn't have even have a deficit. >> ill. >> bill: bill then when when we ran into trouble president bush lowered the cap gains and then we got out of trouble because more money came in. and led to the highest amount of federal tax revenue in history, juan. >> did we get out of trouble? >> bill: no, no. no. because we had the wars and we had the war on terror and all of that. but the facts are the facts. highest amount of tax revenue ever flowing into washington came under president bush when he lowered the capital gains tax. now, mary katharine, am i misguided here? am i misstating something here? >> no. i think you are right. i mean, barack obama is proposing through and he has through the buffet deal before that we should basically jack up the capital gains tax which would discourage investment. >> bill: you are disagreeing with juan. >> and furthermore barack obama was asked about this in a debate with hillary clinton in 2008 where the moderator said it has been shown tax revenue goes up when the capital gains rate is lower. isn't that something you would b
said four years ago. he will bring the deficit down. he didn't. he doubled it. he is going to get more people working. he didn't. we still have over 8 percent unemployment. his plan is another stimulus. how did that first one go? how about $800 billion. how much did you get? it was "cash for clunkers", did you get help from that? no, no, his idea now, he has one new idea. i admit he has one thing he did not do in the first four years, he said he will do it in the next four years, which is to raise taxes. is there anyone who thinks that raising taxes will help grow the economy? no, his plan is continue what he has done before. status quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of president obama of the we will not have four more years of president obama. his plan and his approach says fundamentally that government knows better than you how to live your life, how to pick winners and losers, how to choose companies that can be successful and products that have a future. that a group of bureaucrats, real smart people, working hard -- they are good people who work in washington --
. we're in a $16 trillion deficit, unemployment remains over 8%. these are the things that matter to the american people above all else. that's the message governor romney needs to stay on. >> yeah, but doesn't he need a policy and a plan? i mean, doesn't he sound stupid himself saying it's the economy, stupid, but i'm not going to give you a plan of what i'm going to dough abo about the ec until after i get in? i mean, i understand the slogan is, it's the economy, stupid, but we're not that stupid. >> obviously, that's an old coined term. >> yeah, i got it. >> but this tape, i think it was taken out of context. has it been damaging? i can't sit here and say this tape was good for the romney campaign but statistically it doesn't seem to have as great an impact as the media was saying. i think it was a mistake and taken out of context and i think the american public has to decide if it matters to them or not. >> tad, let me explain to you what joe biden said in virginia today as he took on romney on this 47%. look at this. >> he attacks 47% of the american people who he says pay no
